LibriVox recording of The Chronicles of Clovis, by Saki. This is the third collection of short stories by Saki, following on from 'Reginald' and 'Reginald in Russia'. Although some of the stories have characters that do not appear elsewhere in the collection, many of them are loosely centred round the young Clovis Sangrail (effectively a reincarnation of Reginald).
(Summary by Graham Redman).

Saki is one of the funniest writers in English and is sadly overlooked except for a few stories, some of which aren't even his best. "Chronicles of Clovis" is a good place to begin with his fiction. Here all the stories are extremely well-read, distinct, clear, and aware of the humour. If you like these tales, go on to read "Beasts and Super-Beasts," which is recorded with the same high quality of readership. Excellent!
